50 Cent is known for trolling others, but it turns out the Power producer can take a joke about himself too.
Earlier this month, Nicki Minaj dropped "Barbie Dreams," a twist of Notorious B.I.G.'s "Dreams." While Biggie talked about all the singers he wanted to have sex with, Minaj goes to imagine how sex with male rappers like Lil Uzi Vert, Drake, 6ix9ine, her ex Meek Mill, 50 Cent, and more, would be. It doesn't end well for either suitor.
"I tried to fuck 50 for a powerful hour/But all that nigga wanna do is talk Power for hours," she raps on the track. At the time 50 praised the song on Twitter: "South Side stand up the bitch," he wrote. "Nicki Minaj is really a problem. Out here killing shit." Now, 50 Cent is giving some further thoughts on "Barbie Dreams."
"I like the record," he told Extra around the 11:13 mark (above). "I did a song called 'How to Rob' that she said was the inspiration for it. It brings everyone in the culture that is relevant at the time 'cause they’re on her mind when she’s writing the music." (Minaj has acknowledged "How to Rob" as an inspiration on Queen Radio.)
He also gave props to the "sexy" track for the gender flip. "It’s being written from a different perspective," he said. "To get it from a reverse perspective, it’s cool to see that women in hip-hop have come to a point where they can do it their way."
After the song dropped, Minaj also clarified that it was not a diss track. It was all out of love.
"I only mentioned people in #BarbieDreams that I fuk with. This isn't a diss. Yikes," read her tweet. "This is culture, this is BIGGIE!!!!! New York!!!! Thi is FUN. Light hearted fun FUN."
